Not really. I knew already that yum.conf had its own man page. What I
didn't realize is that I needed to look there for info on colours.
Judging by the various hypotheses put forward in this thread I suspect
that I'm not the only one.

In fact if I used one of the desktop search engines I might have saved
myself and everyone else the bother, but I still haven't come across one
that worked reliably and didn't eat all my cpu. Admittedly it has been
quite a while since I tried.
